Unlike the main office the Bluport one has a tablet computer feedback questionnaire on each desk. One of the questions is did the officer ask for any bribe. So, they are only handling the very basic stuff.

It was standing room only when I arrived to do my 90 day report this morning (I was still out in 20 minutes).

About 5 minutes into the queue, a lady stood at the counter and announced that everybody would need proof of address. I panicked initially, thinking I had nothing with me, until I remembered I had my ID Card in my wallet.

There were a few gaps in the number sequence that followed, so I guess some people left upon hearing the announcement.

When I got to the counter, I just handed my passport over, and the lady was processing it. Mrs BB asked why I wasn't being asked for proof of residence. The lady said that because I'd lived here a number of years, it was not necessary. The announcement was for newbies.

Yes, I heard the same announcement last week when doing my 90 day report. If I remember correctly, the lady said that those without proof of address needed to go to the main office.

Did a 90 day and bought a re-entry permit at Bluport today. Apart from a photocopy of my passport (for re-entry), no other paperwork was required. The photos I had were redundant as they have a camera at the desk. In and out in under 15 mins.

It was nice to see the staff dressed in Thai costume. Much more welcoming than police uniforms. The one guy was probably happy. He had a Thai button-up shirt over his jeans and trainers!!
